A Gazetteer for the United States and Canada
Welcome to Aurora ...
Although we found mention of Aurora during our research, we have little information about it.<1> Given the context of how Aurora was mentioned, we believe that it was a community rather than some type of landmark. We have done a cursory search and if it's a community, we haven't been able to find any evidence that it still exists..
While we are confident that Aurora was located in Norton County, we don't know its actual location within the county.
We've added Aurora to our Gazetteer with the hope that we can develop more information. We would especially like to find the location of Aurora - knowing its coordinates, we can explore things like its relationship to neighboring communities, nearby cemeteries, etc. If you can help us with Aurora, please Contact Us.
When the people of Aurora refer to themselves (known as a demonym), they frequently use Auroran<2>
Time Zone: The area where we believe that Aurora might be (or was) located is in the Central Time Zone (CST/CDT) and observes daylight saving time
We believe that Aurora would be found within the (785) area code.
